Los Angeles Disposition of Human Remains Permit

What is a disposition of human remains permit?

In order for the California government to keep track of the deceased, any movement or activities of the remains (such as entering, moving, and or leaving the area) requires a Permit for Disposition of Human Remains. Including burials at sea.


How can I get a disposition of human remains permit?

You can typically collect your loved ones’ permit from the funeral or crematorium establishment that worked with you and it should be included with the service.

Can I use an out of state disposition of human remains permit for a burial at sea in Los Angeles?

If the ashes are from out of the country, state, or the cremation center is no longer able to re-issue the permit because too much time has passed, then a permit will need to be purchased from the Los Angeles Vital Records Office. This can be done by you, a family member or a friend in the LA area.

What Our Clients Say

We chartered a yacht to Catalina through Los Angeles Yacht Charter for a burial at sea for my mother.

Whether you are looking for a burial at sea or something more fun, I can’t recommend this group highly enough.

Yesterday I had my father’s memorial service on one of their yachts.

They made the whole process very easy and stress-free. The crew were nice and respectful to all of my guests. I would use them again.
